i haven't seen technoboss but I LOVED john from when I watched it a few years ago so I'm guessing john from

I have recently become addicted to Robert Ryan's incredible face and realised he's the best actor in the world ever, so i've been watching a lot of his movies

On Dangerous Ground (Nicholas Ray)
Crossfire (Edward Dmytryk)
Act of Violence (Fred Zinneman)
Caught (Max Ophuls)
Clash by Night (Fritz Lang)

all of these movies are excellent, some more excellent than others, but all stunners. not only because robert ryan (the best actor of all time) is in them, but you will also note that they are all made by people who are very, very good at their job

here he is showing barbara stanwyk his movie projector in Clash by Night

I watched King Kong 1933 last night, I forgot how little of it was set in New York. It was alright, I can definitely see how crazy it would have been back in the day. Fay Wray is beautiful

ended up watching The Naked Spur. really great movie and wow robert ryan just laughs his way through it. that granite face, just laughing no matter what the scenario. amazing.

I watched The Exiles after it. probably a good thing to watch after any western.

i picked the latter thanks to Pris's list at the bottom of the previous page...I also watched She Done Him Wrong yesterday thanks to the same list...woah....mae west unhinged. those one-liners. that walk (a sort of sexy waddle). that voice (I kept hearing christopher walken in her tone...somehow)

could've mentioned this and Bad Day At Black Rock before House of Bamboo, i suppose. The Set-Up is his best performance though and it's only 70 minutes long

Don't mean to go off topic, but watching Stewart tearfully break down in the final scene is one of my all time favourite soul crushing scenes in all of cinema.Toggle Spoiler Robert Ryan's fantastic as always in it, and Janet Leigh more than holds her own in terms of performance. Co-sign The Set-Up also, it's just beyond solid film-making. From what i read about him, Ryan was a pacifist and an advocate for civil rights which is really cool.

yeah this basically squares with the JR Jones bio. he sheds light on a Frankenheimer-directed live TV adaptation of Snows of Kilimanjaro starring Ryan, which has never been made publicly available and sitting in some archive somewhere. wish i could see it.

best Ryans not yet mentioned: God's Little Acre & Men in War (both directed by Anthony Mann), Odds Against Tomorrow, Woman on the Beach (one of the best Renoir-in-Hollywood joints imo)

they've got a bunch of harold lloyd stuff on hbomax. i'd never seen anything of his and watched it with my family and we all loved it. absolutely hysterical, i particularly loved all his scenes as a fabric salesman with awful customers.makes me really want to see his other stuff. gotta say i dug his sassy vibe over the melodrama of chaplin and keaton.

Girl Shy is great too. Some really hilarious, clever gags.

Robert Ryan was awesome for sure. His craggy face is perfect for doomed noir heroes. The Set-Up is especially great.

August viewings:

Risky Business - best movie I've watched in ages. I'm still fascinated weeks later.
Phoenix - tightly structured and precisely executed story of betrayal and loss of self.
The Souvenir - nice elliptical storytelling, distant creeping tragedy, perfect drawling performance by Tom Burke
The Brown Bunny - loved the structure, which reminded me of Twin Peaks S3. The last few minutes completely recast everything leading up to them and suddenly shoot them through with emotion
Venom - completely ridiculous. sometimes fun.

for july, watched 16 movies and my favs were
anand (1971) - must watch for everyone
spongebob musical (2019) - this was actually pretty good
MIB 3 (2012) - much better than the second one
fast and furious (2009)
netflix vs the world (2019) - decent doc but too wordy, could have probably split into a separate doc just for blockbuster
capital in the 21st century (2019) - another decent doc but went over stuff most people already know, it was a good refresher but completely avoided talking about climate change

for aug, i had a big move and haven't gotten back into my normal routine, only watched 3 movies, of which my fav was fast five (2011)
